2013 Trek T80+

Imagine commutes with no troublesome hills, no tired legs and no sweating! Trek makes it a reality with their T80+ bicycle with electric-assist. Trek starts with a light aluminum frame and a comfortable upright riding position, and builds it up with quality components from Shimano, Tektro and Bontrager for precision shifting and braking. But the magic-carpet ride is courtesy of the smooth, powerful and quiet built-in electric motor that runs off a rechargeable battery. It's a pedal-assist system, so if you pedal lightly, the range is 25 miles, and you can extend that range to 45 miles by pedaling more! The removable battery is a sophisticated setup that actually recharges itself on downhills, fits cleanly in the included rear rack and can be recharged from any wall outlet.

Comments:

I've riden this bike over 600 miles in the last four months - mostly as a substitute for auto transport in a small town and its surrounding hinterlands. It is most useful for getting to work, groccery runs, and getting a good bit of exercise out on backcountry roads. Pushing the envelope a bit, I have also used this bike for getting back into the mountains surrounding my local valley. Lower assist settings give the best endurance out of the battery, with its lowest setting offering over 60 miles of travel depending on terrain and wind factors. The motor can be turned off altogether if one prefers to reserve it for riding into a headwind or up steep inclines. At the highest assist setting, in contrast, riding becomes a real breeze - allowing for a speed of roughly 18mph without consierable exertion while offering excellent acceleration. This machine is also great as a form of exercise; when I got it I was living a sedentary lifestyle but can now ride upwards of 25 miles at a stretch without much (if any) aid from the motor. You will still break a sweat if you keep the assist level low, maintain a high speed, and/or travel more than a few miles at a time. The product is also rather study; mine once came out of a low-speed crash from loss of traction on a wet rode with only minor, cosmetic damage! On the other hand, riding into the wind or up hills tempts one to ratchet up the assist level... which is wonderfully helpful but will nonetheless eat away at the battery charge at a considerably higher rate than usual. If you plan to scale steep hills, expect a much shorter range than I mentioned before. Also, the rear wheel is made vulnerable by the bike's aftward weight distribution. Be sure to keep the PSI high and avoid wandering off asphalt much or you *will* eventually get flats. Though I took my T80+ off onto gravel roads on a regular basis (the manual warns not to leave asphalt, by the way) without any initial setbacks, getting a flat atop of a foothill several miles from home really drove the lesson into my head. Exercise sound judgement while riding! Fortunately, rails to trails paths and many country roads are well-kept and paved. Aside from that, I recommend getting some of the bike's bolts upgraded or at least reinforced with sealant at a bike shop if you plan on putting any cargo on the T80+. Those on the battery-bearing frame seem liable to break if made to carry much added weight (e.g. 20 lbs of cargo plus my 245 is too much to reliably bear, otherwise). Likewise, be sure to keep a metric allen wrench on hand and keep everything nice and tight. I once lost a kickstand and the handlebars can get a bit loose on occasion, though both are easy, DIY fixes! Overall, I am very satisfied with the T80+ and would eagerly recommend it to anyone interested who can afford the initial investment! P.S. I encountered a problem with creating the cons list, which resulted in a lot of items pertaining to weight being shown when I only wanted one!

Wind Not an Issue

Pros

        Comments:

        Being a senior citizen and having enjoyed cycling for many years, this bike is allowing me to continue to ride on windy days. With four levels of power assist and seven gear speeds, the bike can be adjusted for a comfortable ride at most any wind resistance. A fully charged battery read out has five bars. After a twenty mile ride, it still shows three bars, so it would probably get close to fifty miles on a single charge. This bike is a quality made Trek product and I would highly recommend it.

        Comments:

        I use this bike for recreation and commuting. Due to health problems, I was afraid of being caught away from home while cycling by wind, hills, or medical symptoms flaring up. This bike gave me some freedom back. My last commute was in the heat, against the wind, and uphill. The electric assist made easy work of it all. You can still get whatever level of workout you would like as it is NOT a moped. It also looks much like a normal bike, so no one notices it is an e-bike unless you tell them.

        Comments:

        With continual health problems, I hated giving up cycling. This bike gave me my freedom to ride again. I have no fear of hills, winds, or even getting too far away from home when my body wants to give out. The pedal assist [up to 200%] makes easy work of obstacles. You can still get whatever type of workout you would like with the 7 gears, 4 electric assist settings, and even a recharge setting if you really want a massive workout. The bike is comfortable and I have had no problems making the 15-25 mile casual rides.It is a bit of an investment, but taken care of, it looks like it will last for many years to come.

        We love to ride long Rails to Trails routes throughout the country. We easily get 40-50 miles on a single battery charge. Keeps you riding even as you age or have physical issues. We live in Tucson and frequently climb hills; Ride+ makes it safe and easy.
